Saskatchewan Highway Hotline Is Getting Ready for Summer

Released on April 24, 2015

If you plan to take a trip this summer, remember to check the Highway Hotline before planning your route.

During the summer, the Highway Hotline is updated to inform motorists of construction zones, flooding, forest fires or other events.  The travel planning route locator provides the latest information on frequently travelled highways in your preferred area.  A visual system of construction pylons and alert icons has been created on the Highway Hotline map to denote road restrictions.

“With a record highways budget of $842 million, travellers can expect to see a number of construction zones this summer,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner said.  “The Highway Hotline is a great tool to relay up-to-date information to the public.”

The Saskatchewan Highway Hotline receives more than four million inquiries per year.  In addition, the Highway Hotline social media pages continue to attract more and more visitors.  Currently, the Highway Hotline hosts about 37,000 Facebook followers and almost 20,000 Twitter followers.

Many ferries are also launching regular operations.  Check out the latest road condition and ferry status updates on the Highway Hotline at www.saskatchewan.ca/highwayhotline.  Recorded reports are available by calling 306-787-7623 in Regina, 306-933-8333 in Saskatoon, the Sasktel cellular network at *ROAD, and toll-free across Canada at 1-888-335-7623.

For road closures and travel not recommended alerts, check out the Highway Hotline Twitter account, @SKGovHotline.  Also check out the Highway Hotline Facebook page at www.facebook.com/SaskatchewanHighwayHotline for general tips and information.
